Swing Into Sunny Days

 Now with summer officially here, it is the perfect time to start swinging into sunnier days. This past Saturday ( June 21st) Summer Solstice,  the longest day of the year, marked the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere.  The long sunny days and hot weather are here. It’s time to get outside and enjoy it!
There are countless ways to get outside and enjoy the sunshiny summer days ahead. You can enjoy nature right at home or venture out a little, now that many states are slowly re-opening. Even with restrictions and social distancing and other precautions in place, you can still harness the power of nature wherever you are to help you unwind and enjoy every lovely moment of warmth that summer has to offer us. Below I share with you four ways to do just that:
  1. Walk barefoot on the ground. Feel the grass and underneath your feet and reconnect with the natural world around you. Draw up the loving and nurturing energy Mother Earth has to offer you through your feet and feel it fill your whole body.
  2. Slow down at sunset. Sit in silence and take in the moment and beauty as the day melts away into the vibrant colors of pink, yellow, and orange.
  3. Get up and get out! Enjoy the best of the day on bright sunny mornings. Go for a walk or morning jog, do some gardening, practice some morning yoga or Qi Gong outside, read a book or if you are working remotely, why not bring your office outside for the day?
  4. Jump in the water. Go swimming if you can. Swimming is a great exercise and promotes good blood circulation.
